* Elise's singing voice in Music/SoundHorizon's "Märchen" was created using the Hatsune Miku Music/{{Vocaloid}} software, with Revo's reasoning being that it made sense for a CreepyDoll to have an artificial voice. Her speaking voice, on the other hand, is provided by Fujita Saki (aka, the original source for Miku's voice).

* Texas Instruments' ''Speak n' Spell'' toys deserve a special mention due to the fact that they have a very early TI synthesizer, model [=TMC0280=], that the PeripheryDemographic loves to abuse.
* Several early V-Tech educational computer systems also has optional speech modules that can be purchased separately and added to the toy to provide speech.

* The Software Automatic Mouth, or SAM, by Don't Ask Software, provides a CPU-driven speech synthesizer to any machine that has a PSG chip. The Apple II version supported several PSG-based sound cards made for the Apple II (and was a pack-in software for several cards), and the [=C64=] version drives the SID chip directly. The Atari 8-bit version used the POKEY chip (another PSG chip on Atari 8-bit computers that can also be found in several arcade machines), but had other limitations due to the design of the system (the ANTIC chip had to be disabled, as do interrupts- this means that the screen has to be blanked while generating speech). The PC and base Apple II version can even try to generate speech from the internal beeper by treating it as a rudimentary PSG. [=MacInTalk=] was a rebranded version of this software that Steve Jobs personally commissioned Don't Ask Software to produce for the Mac (which went on to voice AUTO in Film/WallE, among many other roles). Microsoft Voice/Speech (of which Microsoft Sam is a part of) is also undoubtedly its spiritual successor if not direct spinoff or even direct continuation of the line.

* Creator/StephenHawking, famously, whose distinctive MachineMonotone voice is probably the TropeCodifier inspiring many of these examples.
* Creator/RogerEbert used a computer to communicate after he lost his voice due to thyroid cancer. Software engineers tried to use clips from [[Series/SiskelAndEbert his TV show]] to synthesize his own voice, but they had only limited success since much of the time he was talking over movie clips or background music.

* Music/CamperVanBeethoven's version of "Sisters Of The Moon" by Music/FleetwoodMac has a text-to-speech program reciting the lyrics (and also throwing in seemingly arbitrary quotes from Pindar, Creator/WilliamShakespeare, and ''ThisIsSpinalTap''). As with Erasure's "Video Killed The Radio Star" cover, this was done because no one in the band wanted to sing it.
